Inspirational Sailing Adventures aboard the Amelie Rose

We have been providing low-carbon adventure holidays aboard the Amelie Rose since 2009, sailing all over the English Channel from the Solent to Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly, and across to the Channel Islands and Brittany.

Our focus is on offering you exciting, safe, inspirational sailing adventures – regardless of your age, race, religion, disability, sexuality or gender/gender expression enabling you to enjoy living within nature, harnessing her power, and bringing you closer to the elements and your crewmates as a result.

I hope that you enjoy browsing our site and look forward to sailing with you soon,

Sail

There are many ways to enjoy a low-carbon adventure aboard the Amelie Rose; join us for a Traditional Taster Weekend, set sail on a longer Adventure Cruise, be part of the action at a Festival or Special Event or polish your sailing skills on a Training Course or Milebuilder Voyage

From belaying pins to topmasts, bowsprits to gun-tackles; traditional boats are awash with terms unfamiliar to the modern sailor.

Learn gaff rig sailing skills on any of our adventures, or join us for a training course or mile-builder voyage to experience prefessional quality training on the prettiest school boat in the Channel

Enjoy

No sailing experience is required and you can come on your own or share the adventure with friends, We have trips ranging in length from two days to over a fortnight and you can even book the whole boat for a very special custom celebration.
